Marten Carlson

Lead Mattress Reviewer

Marten has been writing about mattresses and sleep health for over five years. He is the Lead Reviewer at Mattress Clarity where he reviews mattresses, bedding, and sleep accessories.

In his time at Mattress Clarity, Marten has reviewed over 500 mattresses. In addition, he has written over 400 articles reviewing the quality of sleep and sleep products as well as sleep health. Topics have ranged from the impact of technology on sleep quality to the way sleep impacts cardiovascular health. He is especially interested in the correlation between proper sleep and mental health.

Marten also has a personal stake in sleep health. After writing numerous pieces on the dangers of sleep apnea, he decided to get tested for the condition. Realizing he did, in fact, suffer from sleep apnea, he immediately started using a CPAP machine. Marten knows all too well the importance of a healthy night’s sleep.

He received his bachelor’s degree in Film Production from Denison University and his master’s degree in Film Studies from Emory University.
